The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) granted an easement to the County of Riverside which will be used as a public road.

The MWD board’s June 10 approval granted an easement of 0.75 acres in Winchester for the road which will serve an adjacent planned housing development. The developer will pay MWD $33,500 to cover the $32,000 fair market value of the easement along with a $1,500 processing fee.

easement provides MWD with access to the San Diego Aqueduct canal near Lake Skinner. MWD staff determined that granting the easement would not interfere with MWD’s water operations.  

The design and construction plans for the improvements which will be constructed on the easement are subject to MWD review and written approval, and in the event that the county discontinues use of the easement land for more than three years the easement will be terminated.
